Tom’s pink slip “came true” late yesterday and his official last day at work is today. He’ll be going back to his original career field of Environmental Science and Engineering, but after 8 years out (as a digital environments artist), it might be hard to get back into the environmental arena. I am cautiously optimistic.
Elisabeth was laid off from her job at a Women’s Research Clinic last week. She’s been accepted into nursing school for the fall, but she’ll be putting herself through school this time (she already has a degree from Cal), so she still needs to work.
And Aleks, Kat and Peter all need both jobs and student loans if they are to finish college.
So yeah – I’m the only one of the six of us who is employed. A little pressure? Um, yeah -- just a tad.
In other words, I am frikkin’ terrified!
